The 90-Day Plan: DAY 31

The 90 Day Plan - 90 Ways in 90 Days

The 90 Day Plan: Day 31 

Every year, households in America tend to generate about 100 pounds of Hazardous Household Waste (HHW). KNOW WHAT is in YOUR HOME! HHW ranges from: paints and drain cleaners to fluorescent bulbs and used motor oil. Go through your home to investigate and tally HHW sources. By checking under sinks, in cabinets, the basement and garage you will find the majority of HHW.

For More Information:

Challenge: Choose three standard cleaning products that are considered HHW and find a way to replace them with a safer alternative. Example: a plunger is an alternative to harsh chemicals used to un-clog drains.
